The boss: Universities Ranking

I agree with Ong Ye Kung but how to maintain a first rate reputation for our universities with scant regard for how they rank is not easy to pull off. I look forward to him taking the same attitude toward the various KPIs our government bodies are run. Never let the rankings or KPIs be the real boss unless they serve us very well. Even if they could start off on the right footing, mission drift is unavoidable given enough time. Good that this guy dares to change and is also modest enough to check help his predecessor achieved unmet goals. Most times we have the new boss more eager to make his own mark and no humility to continue the work of his predecessor when that is better for the people.
